Hello, hello there,
Just a little pop in to say hello, while the wee fam and I are currently hanging out in Philly while the Mr. was invited to speak at several classes at the University we graduated from. It's always fun to get out of town for a bit, but I will admit as it's been commonplace for us lately, I've definitely tired of living out of a suitcase, ya know? On a brighter note, I will always welcome any alone time that the Mr. and I can spend together!
Anyhow, this time around I've packed mostly thrifted or gifted items which I will admit, gives me a sense of satisfaction to know that under $20 was spent putting this look together. I was ever so lucky as a duck that the very sweet Taylor, of Nothing but a Pigeon, was cleaning out her wardrobe and offered up this cheery eyelety orange frock for grabs. Of course I grabbed it! Along with that I had the best week ever of thrift finds which included this bug covered blouse and authentic Danish clogs circa the 70s. Yeah, score for me!
Which brings me to this point: As new dresses are making there way into shop windows and gracing the pages of our favorite clothing sites, it's hard not to become tempted to drop some dough. However I'm sticking to my guns and refraining from buying things I truly don't need, thrifting as much as I can, and occasionally shopping sales. How about you? Do you find yourself purchasing a new wardrobe with the change of the season or do you pinch your pennies and buy secondhand?
